Robert Graves quotes (15)

A remarkable thing about Shakespeare is that he is really very good in spite of all the people who say he is very good.
Robert Graves   Category:

A well chosen anthology is a complete dispensary of medicine for the more common mental disorders, and may be used as much for prevention as cure.
Robert Graves   Category:

Anthropologists are a connecting link between poets and scientists; though their field-work among primitive peoples has often made them forget the language of science.
Robert Graves   Category:

Genius not only diagnoses the situation but supplies the answers.
Robert Graves   Category:

If I were a girl, I'd despair. The supply of good women far exceeds that of the men who deserve them.
Robert Graves   Category:

If there's no money in poetry, neither is there poetry in money.
Robert Graves   Category:

In love as in sport, the amateur status must be strictly maintained.
Robert Graves   Category:

Marriage, like money, is still with us; and, like money, progressively devalued.
Robert Graves   Category: Marriage

Robert Graves   Category:

One gets to the heart of the matter by a series of experiences in the same pattern, but in different colors.
Robert Graves   Category:

Prose books are the show dogs I breed and sell to support my cat.
Robert Graves   Category:

The remarkable thing about Shakespeare is that he really is very good, in spite of all the people who say he is very good.
Robert Graves   Category:

There's no money in poetry, but then there's no poetry in money, either.
Robert Graves   Category: Poetry

To be a poet is a condition rather than a profession.
Robert Graves   Category:

What we now call "finance" is, I hold, an intellectual perversion of what began as warm human love.
